History


How tourism developed in Flims.


 

         One who will not cherish the past, will not  succeed in the future.



  • 1905  Tourism board Flims was founded (discontinued by now)
  • 1908  First ski lessons were held
  • 1924  Wintersport activities got extended by an ice rink and sled run
  • 1931  Swiss Ski School Flims opened as the first one countrywide (discontinued 2007)
  • 1945  First disengageable chair lift in the world from Flims to Foppa was installed and commissioned
  • 1947  Chair lift from Foppa to Naraus was opened
  • 1950  Ice hockey and curling teams were founded 
  • 1956  Aerial tramway Naraus - Cassons was solemnly inaugurated
  • 1961  Hannes Giger was shaping the advertising slogan: "Flims, die Weisse Arena"
  • Between 1961 – 1972, the ski region was steadily extended by various lifts, i.a. the gondola Flims – Startgels and the aerial tramway Startgels – Grauberg
  • 1996  Mountain railways Laax were taken over by mountain railways Flims
  • 2015/16  Ski School Montagnarda welcomes its first guests. Sparked by the belief that in tourism it is of great importance to offer guests uncompromising quality and authenticity, I decided to open my own ski school to treat ski guests with a genuine hospitality and a friendly and attentive service they deserve. As a long established local (call me aborigines if you want) and Federal Certified Snow Sports Instructor with the highest level of national formation, I'm looking forward to welcome you in Flims Laax Falera!
